What you'll do

Our Ice-Fishing Trip will take you to some frozen lake located around 20 kilometers north of Rovaniemi, over the Arctic Circle. The destination will make you fully aware of the raw Arctic beauty and will give you the chance to enjoy it in silence. All the places that we choose for ice-fishing not only offer a good chance to catch something but are also meant to restore tranquility and peace of mind.

After being picked up from your accommodation and given proper winter clothing/boots, your guide will drive you away from Rovaniemi to find the perfect peaceful place. Once you have found a promising spot, your guide will show you how to drill your own hole in the ice, and will teach you the basic techniques how to ice-fish. Then, it is just a matter of time and patience before you can feel the first bites ! This is just the perfect moment to appreciate the silent wilderness spreading all around you.

While you will be fishing, they will chop wood and prepare a fire on the shores for you. Some typical Finnish snacks and hot drinks will be served around the fire and will offer a convivial opportunity to your guide to answer all your questions about life in the Arctic and Lapland in general.

This Ice-Fishing Trip will offer you a great chance to catch your breath in the silent immensity of Lapland nature while experiencing a traditional activity that many locals like to practice.

Hi, my Name is Theo, I am the CEO of Wild about Lapland. I have been running Northern lights tour, wilderness trips, ice fishing, ski and snowshoeing tours for the past five years in Rovaniemi, the Finnish Lapland.

When coming on a tour with us, you will first be brought to our little office to get dressed in all the arctic gear. Then your guide will explain how you and your small group will move ahead with your trip.

The tours we run are based on learning about this wonderful arctic environment and really trying to immerse yourself in it.
